We have Sprung forward and lost an hour of sleep but gained an hour of daylight. The first Official Day of Spring will be March 20th, but you can enjoy spring like flavors anytime with my Rainbow of Smoothies!
Blackberries are a very vibrant color when blended, and great for hiding all sorts of nutritious things. Keep that in mind for the future.
The deep color of blackberries and cherries comes from their anthocyanins, a super healthy antioxidant you should strive to eat daily. And with a smoothie, there is no excuse, since you literally need about 30 seconds to toss everything in the blender and press a button to have breakfast ready to go.
Oh, you can do something good for your health that is also super fast and delicious?? Sign me up!
- 1 cup fresh or frozen blackberries
- 1 cup fresh or frozen cherries
- 1/2 cup fruit juice or coconut water
- 1/2 cup yogurt
Put all ingredients in a blender, and blend until smooth. If using fresh berries, you can add a handful of ice for a different texture.
Congratulations, you’ve reached the end of the Rainbow! I hope you’ve found some inspiration to step up your blending game and add lots of colorful produce to your life.
